There seems to be enough on our plates when we have Addison's Disease alone...but other illnesses do occur and many are chronic. What impact does this have on your Addison's? or the other illness? It most definitely complicates all. It will many times mean a need for more steroid support for the Addison's. A crisis may be more likely. When a flare of a chronic illness occurs it will affect your Addison's, meaning you may need more steroid just to maintain your normal level of activity or stability. Anything that causes a stress will deplete your steroid and threaten a crisis. And another illness is a stress. Please keep this in mind and do not hesitate to increase your steroid when necessary. But always consult your medical advisor for their recommendations on how best to treat your Addison's and keep all medical professionals involved in your treatment aware of what each is prescribing or doing to control or treat your illnesses.
Do not feel that you are being fragile or, dare I say, a wimp if you are having a difficult time managing your illnesses. You are stronger than you think!
Enjoy your spring...and take care of you! Without guilt!
